The term “Moving Prosthesis” is often used to mean that the patient can wear and remove the prosthesis instead of the missing teeth. These types of prostheses have to be supported by the teeth in the mouth,
as well as the soft tissues around the teeth. The prosthesis is slightly embedded in the soft tissues in the mouth, meaning it is moving, due to the load on it during chewing. That’s why we can use the term “Moving Prosthesis”.
They can be made on a metal infrastructure, or on polymethyl Methacrylate (Acrylic) in the gum color, or in the form of a metal+acrylic combination.
Instead of missing natural teeth, acrylic or porcelain ready-made teeth are used.
Partially Moving Prosthesis
These are the prostheses that can be worn and removed by the patient instead of missing teeth, which are adhered to the metal body and existing teeth with metal crochets (wires) or special precision connected prosthesis to replace the teeth that are reduced in the mouth. If you use partial prosthesis, you should take more care of your oral care.
- The partial prosthesis you use prevents the displacement of your own teeth in your mouth. When gaps occur between natural teeth, the teeth on the side and on the opposite side move towards this gap. Displacing teeth are more difficult to clean and have undesirable loads on them. For these reasons, the risk of decay, gum disease and loss of these teeth increases.
- Chewing and talking will be more comfortable with the use of prostheses. If the person chews using one side as a result of tooth deficiency, problems will occur with the teeth and gums on the side that is used regularly.
- Tooth positions are also important in speaking. Dental deficiencies repaired by prosthesis will provide speech comfort.
- In order to correct your distorted aesthetic appearance, your missing teeth must always be repaired with prosthesis. This is because teeth support lips and cheeks, affecting face appearance.
- In dental treatments, administering medication to the vein in the area where the procedure was performed to reduce pain and edema after the treatment
Precision Connected Prosthesis
It is another type of prosthesis used in partial tooth deficiency. Prosthesis connection is achieved not by clips like the partial prosthesis, but by male and female parts called precision connections. These prostheses are far superior to conventional partial prostheses in terms of aesthetics, connection and health.
It is the prosthesis applied to patients with no teeth in their mouth. Full prostheses are usually made from a substance called acrylic, and in very rare and special cases with metal support. Artificial teeth placed on this structure are generally available on the market in acrylic material. The use of porcelain teeth in full prosthesis is preferred depending on the special circumstances. Therefore, it is best for your dentist to decide on the materials to be used.
Full prosthesis is the type of prosthesis that is most difficult to use, since it will only receive support from soft tissues in your mouth, and psychologically, it causes the discomfort of losing all your natural teeth. In addition to lacking the pleasure of chewing, tasting, or eating certain foods, you will also be irritated by the problems that may arise when using them. But you have to accept: you are now a full prosthesis patient, and you must protect your jaw bones and soft tissues that carry this prosthesis very well. The bones that hold the teeth in your jaws lose a certain amount of height after loss of teeth. This loss of height will continue throughout life. The reduction of this melting in the bone depends on your compliance with your dentist’s recommendations.
